This natural herbal extract comes from the nut of the shea tree in Africa and is rich in vitamins A, D, E and F, states SAL Enterprises. Shea butter penetrates your hair easily to moisturize and soften it. It also protects it from the sun’s burning rays that dry out hair and contribute to breakage. However, the website Treasured Locks points out that shea butter products are available at different quality levels. Raw or unrefined shea butter is the best.
